Questions addressed within theme 3:

  • How does climate-induced changes influense terrestrial fluxes of pollutants and dissolved organic carbon?
  • How does changed temperature, levels of dissolved organic carbon and nutrients, and carbon quality affect sorption and bioaccumulation of POPs in the three basins of the Baltic Sea? Do these changes lead to increased production of biogenic polybrominated dioxins?
  • How can complex relations between ecosystem function and pollutant food web transfer be described and used for food web modeling?
